Working Group on Capacity Building meetings and activities 2018

GBEP Activity Group 4 - GBEP Side Event at the Global Landscape Forum on "Contribution of a sustainable wood energy production approach to Forest Landscape Restoration in Sub-Saharan Africa" - Bonn, 1-2 December 2018

The event aimed to discuss the relevance and opportunity of sustainable wood energy production and use as a contribution to forest landscape restoration (FLR) with stakeholders across sectors and especially between FLR and bioenergy stakeholders. The focus of the event was Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), as both challenges and opportunities for sustainable woody bioenergy to contribute to FLR - and vice versa - are concentrated in countries in this region. Currently, there is a lack of collaboration between those requiring wood energy and those concerned with enhancing FLR. This event sought to bring stakeholders from both groups together into dialogue to explore the views of different stakeholders, and to develop a joint agenda for action around sustainable wood energy and FLR.
